I don’t know how I will make it. It seems the destination is so far away.

What do I want? To be able to live on my own terms, free from the pressures of giving up my own time for someone who does not really care about me. I desire to be in charge of myself. I don’t desire power or great wealth, but I do desire to matter. What do I mean by that? I want to live meaningfully, to be able to speak of philosophy, science, and the mind in a way that is innovative and helpful to others. If I am able to do that, I will live in line with my values and passions.

But the road is far, and scary. I don’t know if people will want to use my knowledge, or if my knowledge is enough. But I must try. Why? Because even if I fail, at least I stepped up to my own calling. Like the brave words of Helen Keller “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing”.

That’s why, for better or for worse, I have to continue forward. But I should keep in mind, that it’s not about the destination. It’s not about being a great mind, it’s about becoming one. Learn to enjoy your unique pursuit, even if life teaches you lessons about poverty or sorrow. Find enjoyment in your story. It’s so easy to get lost and confused because there are so many others trying to talk you into their illusion. Remember to walk to the beat of your own drum,

Enjoy it as if it were already a symphony, because it is.

    @rasmusrygh I love this phrase: <<there are so many others trying to talk you into their illusion>>
    And... I don't want my life to be a symphony! I want it to be a beautiful small piece of baroque chamber music. So that there is more pauses than notes.

      @lucjah Thanks alot! Haha, and I love your take on it, it doesn't have to be the grandeur of a symphony, life might be more subtle than that in reality!

    @rasmusrygh love that quote “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing”.

    @rasmusrygh - This is a well written piece. But I would change the title. Maybe something more like - 'Is Life a symphony?' or something positive.
    I feel that a lot of people are in a similar situation .. the more you write with vulnerability and openness like this, the more you will find like minded people.
    Keep writing.

      @keni Thanks a lot! I tried experimenting a bit with the titles, would love to see this community more interactive, so I fell to the temptation of clickbait. Should have stuck with the artist within tho, "Is life a Symphony" would have been a great title.
      I hope to reach out to people like that, growing together finding a common purpose.

      Keep writing too Keni,
      Have a great night!
